Patient Care Philosophy

I believe that great patient care goes far beyond just choosing the right chemotherapy for a patient. I strive my best to facilitate effective communication between my patients and my medical team to inform my patients of all potential facets of treatment options.

Personal Interests

When not attending to my patients, I enjoy nature, hiking, running, and enjoying walking the city with a cup of warm chai. I also attempt to play the piano and learning new languages.

Clinical Interests

Treatment of patients with leukemia, lymphoma, blood disorders; management of patients receiving cellular therapies including CAR-T cell therapy.

Research Interests

Enhancing understanding of CAR-T cell treatment related toxicity and standardizing clinical management; optimizing outcomes of patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
